Can Anyone Tell Me What Type of Plant This Is?
I was given this plant a few days ago, but was not told what type it was, aside from it being an indoor plant. When I received the plant, the leaves were almost black with bugs and the starting to turn a yellow color. I washed the leaves last night which seemed to help it a bit, but the leaves are still turning yellow. The plant was bone dry, so I watered it a bit and put it in a sunny location, but not direct sun light. There are also little bulbs that are there, but the gal that gave it to me said the bulbs didn't open for her either. I would really like to keep this plant, but don't know what type it is so I can read up to find out what is wrong with it. There was also this sticky substance that was oozing from the base of the plant and the buds. It is also root bound, but didn't want to replant it until I could nurse it back to health, or is that the problem here. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
